Speedway lawsuit settled

Posted: Updated:

COLQUITT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A lawsuit has finally be settled between a Colquitt County Speedway and a family who lives nearby.

In July, Jack and Lorine Lowery filed a law suit against Christopher Hunnicutt, the owner of Needmore Speedway at the time.

The Lowerys said the sound of the race cars and the trash left behind after each race was a nuisance to their livelihood.

Their attorney says the Lowerys came to a settlement Thursday, and they have a right to sue if someone else opens the track and disrupts their peace.

"We're just happy we were able to work with the Lowerys," said their attorney, Ranse Partin. "They are hard working honest people and we're glad we were able to get them a little bit of relief so they can enjoy their farm again."

The race track owner filed for bankruptcy after the track was closed down in July.
